Do you like to read or hear stories read to you? This lesson is great for those who want something to listen to while relaxing, riding on the train or working around the house. These stories are a great way to study, learn new words and improve your listening comprehension. They are fun and short to medium length. These stories are good for people who want something to listen to besides the news. Each story is written and read with the ESL learner in mind so every story is easier to understand and slower than regular news broadcasts and native speaker's audiobooks.
You'll get one downloadable MP3 audiobook with transcript so you can read along if you want, which will be sent to you within 24 hours of requesting the lesson. After you purchase the book, it's yours to listen to whenever you want; on your computer at home, or on your phone or tablet on the train or anywhere!
These stories are for individual use only. Please do not share them with your friends since I work hard on each story. If you would like to use these stories in a classroom, please contact me first.

The Beginner's stories are short and read very slowly, with simple vocabulary and easy sentence structures.
